Novelist and editor Susan Kaminsky died on March 31 of respiratory failure in New York. She was 70.
With her husband Howard, she co-authored five novels: “The Glow” and “The Seventh Child” under the pseudonym Brooks Stanwood; “Talent” and “The Twelve” under their own names; and “The Storyteller” under the pen name Arthur Reid.
A 2002 television film adapted from “The Glow” starred Dean Cain and Portia de Rossi. Kaminsky was a senior fiction editor at the Saturday Evening Post, a senior editor at E. P. Dutton, where she edited Rachel Carson and Charles McCarry, and a member of the board of directors of Literacy Partners.
She is survived by her husband Howard, her daughter Jessica Rock, a television writer, and a grandson.
